The Mobile Economy: India 2016

This report from the GSMA discusses the mobile economy in India. India boasts the second highest number of mobile subscribers of any country worldwide – testament to the technological transformation that has spread across Indian society over the past decade. The country is also now the world’s second largest smartphone market, having overtaken the US in the first half of 2016. The country is now seeing an accelerating move to 4G, with nearly half of the connection base forecast to be running over mobile broadband networks by 2020.

The GSMA represents the interests of mobile operators worldwide, uniting more than 750 operators with over 350 companies in the broader mobile ecosystem, including handset and device makers, software companies, equipment providers and internet companies, as well as organisations in adjacent industry sectors.
